the patriot act. that's like everything martin luther king did in public. >> breaking laws? law plauzbly, who knows. >> birmingham, the children's march, the march on washington, the march -- every anti-abortion protest? any time you're in the street you put people in danger and you're often breaking a law. so you know, again, we should all be up in arms about this stuff, and yet, you know. >> and frankly you don't have to have broken a law or be suspected of breaking a law to come within what the patriot act allows the government to do in terms of getting information about you. >> i want to ask you guys what this means for our conception of bipartisan ship. that's part of what the core is. always the story, we are had bipartisanship and we lost it and that's bad and that doesn't seem to me at all a complete picture of what this congress was. we'll talk about that after we take this break.
